Gear S3 charging take ages/if at all.

Ok here is the scenario (it has happened a couple of time)

Using the supplied wireless charger and cable, I turn off the S3 and put it on charge and leave it all night. When I come back it is sitting in the mid 70% and deosn't seem to charge any more. I take it off and replace it, only for it to start flashing an exclamation mark in a yellow trianggle (not a good sign if I had left it a long time!).

 

Lastely I take it off and replace it a third time for it to fully charge to 100% (so it is capable).

 

What gives? Why did it work the 3rd time? Wht's with the warning sign, it didn't seem overly hot. (hopefully not Note7 battery syndrom!)

Nevermind, it seems happy now. Charging to 100% three times in a row.

P.S. Samsung has released an update that should fix this problem...

 

On your phone, go into the Gear App, Settings, About Gear, Update Gear Software, Download Updates Maunally.

I have the gear sport and I am having the same issue. I have no option to download s/w update manually. When I try, I am told my device has the latest s/w version. 

 

Any other ideas?
